BISHKEK, September 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Kyrgyzstan’s new authorities have promised to fulfil all agreements reached with Russia’s gas giant Gazprom clearly and timely, Prime Minister Almazbek Atambayev said on Wednesday, commenting on the results of his meeting with Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller.
“As a result, I hope for the inflow of investments in our country,” he said, adding, “We have a great joint activity with Gazprom in the future.”
He acknowledged that Kyrgyzstan’s previous leadership meaningly ignored implementation of agreements signed earlier with Russia’s Gazprom, thus going back on the partners.
“We must acknowledge that the partnership agreements earlier had been adopted in the interests of certain persons. From now on, we will change the situation in order to make decisions in the interests of the entire country,” Atambayev said.
He is confident that previously the cooperation plans with Russians could not be implemented due to the personal interests of certain individuals of Kyrgyzstan.
As a results of the meeting between Atambayev and Miller, the sides made a decision that Russia’s company will start geological exploration of hydrocarbons in Kyrgyzstan.
In addition, the two interlocutors agreed to develop cooperation in the banking area and electricity-generating sector. With taking into account plans for the expansion of joint activity, Miller said about the readiness to open the Gazprom Group’s mission in Bishkek.
“We also plan to suggest Gazprom to take part in the construction of an electric transmission line and hydropower plants in our republic,” Atambayev said.
Miller, in turn, stated that representatives of his company will explore oil and gas in Kyrgyzstan and their amounts will be sufficient for the republic’s domestic demand.
At the initial stage of the geological surveys, Russia’s Gazprom plans to invest in the project about three billion roubles (USD 1 = RUB 29.49).
